If you’re reading this and thinking about how you can support the African Lion on your next trip to Africa, then you have come to the right place. Traveling to Africa and going on safari is a dream of many people, but only a few get to experience wild animals in their natural habitat. The spotlight on our environment and wildlife has never been stronger. Travelers are becoming more and more enthusiastic about supporting wildlife conservation through the safari or lodgings they choose to book.
This is where we come in! BornWild’s passion is to create extraordinary adventures but our dedication is to change the narrative for wild animal conservation which we do through the vehicle of travel. African Lion numbers are decreasing and they are now classed as ‘Vulnerable’ on the conservation status.
We created our ‘African Lion Safari’ which bridges lion conservation with adventure travel. Our expedition takes us on a rare route through Tanzania and Kenya – exploring one of the most extraordinary journeys in Africa.
The Great Migration, The Great Rift Valley, Ngorongoro Crater, night and daytime game drives, foot safaris, and mountain hikes are just some of the wonderful things that we’ll get to do on this adventure.
There will be a strong emphasis on Lion Conservation. We will be exposing travelers to resources and experiences you will only encounter through this adventure. Lion Conservation in action!
Travelers will be accompanying one of the world’s best lion conservation organizations to enable you to broaden your safari experience above and beyond your wildest dreams.
7 Helpful Tips on How to Help Wildlife on Your Next Safari Trip
- When booking a safari holiday, it is always important to question where your money is going and specifically how it will support wildlife conservation.
- Volunteer at reputable wildlife centers and parks.
- Don’t buy souvenirs that are made out of animal products such as ivory, fur, hair or teeth. This will only increase the demand for it.
- Protect the environment when camping on safari. Bring compostable and biodegradable items and dispose of them correctly. Littering can affect the wildlife directly.
- Be aware that some safari companies exploit animals as part of their tour. This can include riding elephants or walking with lions. We highly advise that you do not support any company who does this as a means to support animal welfare or conservation.
- Game viewing practices should be done within safari vehicles or guided walking safaris. Within vehicles it is also advised that vehicles do not encroach on the animal’s space and drive too close.
- Lastly, do your research – it is vital that when traveling, you are traveling responsibly.
